Vodpod videos no longer available.
Song: Spaceman
Artist: The Killers
Album: Day & Age
Label: Island Records
Notes: 2nd single from LP
Analysis: Day & Age is an album I was supremely disappointed with. It had nothing to do with the music not being good, but when you are expecting an Americana style rock and roll album (more like their previous album Sam’s Town), it’s hard to settle for synths and saxophone solos. Regardless, The Killers remain one of my favorite modern bands, and while ‘Spaceman’ might not be one of my favorite songs by them, it is one of the better tracks from the record. The video is truly odd, with lots of lavish futuristic (?) costumes, and an alien dance party. Fun concept, but I’m pulling for ‘This Is Your Life’ to get the video treatment later on in the year.
